It’s been an exciting week of anticipation here in Middle School. Early this morning we sent our 8th graders off on their capstone trip to Mexico! We wish them a bon voyage / buen viaje– be safe and bring home a ton of sweet memories! 6th and 7th graders will set off on their own adventure to the Glacier Institute on Monday morning. We’ll see you at school, bright and early at 7:30am.
As a part of preparing for our big spring trips, we took advantage of a couple wonderful opportunities here in town: the 6th graders took a field trip to the UM planetarium and learned what constellations to look for in the dark Glacier skies next week. A special thanks goes out to Physics and Astronomy Professor – and MIS parent-extraordinaire – Dan Reisenfeld, for an engaging presentation. Today we are bringing all the 6th and 7th graders to the International Wildlife Film Festival – be sure to ask your child which film he/she enjoyed most.
Believe it or not, we are already looking forward to the 2017-2018 school year. Due to a scheduling conflict with the camp at Flathead Lake, the Middle School Opening Retreat has been rescheduled to August 31st – September 1st. Please mark your calendars!
Have a wonderful weekend,
Jen and the Middle School Team
